Was seated right away, our server Adam was fantastic! Attentive to our needs, but not overly so......I had the Balsamic Braised Beef Short rib on a bed of Parmesan Cheese risotto (so yummy) and spinach. They also have a nice desert menu.....yes I saved room...More

We were late arriving for lunch (about 1:30 PM) but it seemed to be no problem. We shared a cheeseburger (delicious, perfectly cooked and with great fries), and a salad with crispy coconut shrimp (also very tasty). Service was excellent, since we were almost alone,...More
